I then went to pump the thing up and my pump suffered a total malfunction. On a Monday, in the dark, in the drizzle. It would not clamp onto the valve and when it would clamp it wouldn't pump. I tried everything for 25 minutes to get this bloody thing to work, but nope, it simply refused to play. Bastard thing!
As luck would have it one of my lads passed me on his way to work in his van so he played the good Samaritan and gave me and my dead bike a lift in. So today is going to be spent getting the front tyre inflated and working out what the bloody hell is the matter with my pump!
I love cycling.
